He was born on August 10, 1880, in Manchester, Bennington County, Vermont,[1] the son of financier Walter C.

Constable (born 1884),[4] and they had one son: Walter Watson Stokes Jr. (born 1903). They lived at 829 Park Avenue in Manhattan, and the Stokes family's country home "Woodside Hall" in Cooperstown. In 1931, Mary Stokes went to Reno, Nevada, to get a divorce.[5]
